Born and raised just north of the Fort Worth stockyards, Reid Farris has always had country music running through his veins. It wasn’t until Reid moved off to San Marcos that he joined up with a few fellow Bobcats and began making a name for himself playing in bars from the San Marcos Square to the world-famous 6th Street in Austin. With powerful and truthful lyrics combined with smooth and versatile vocals Reid Farris is newcomer on the rise.

After playing with names like Zane Williams and Deryl Dodd, Reid has recently come back to the metroplex and is breaking through in the Fort Worth music scene collaborating with artists like the Brandon Steadman, Skylar Payne, and Ricky Russell. Currently working on his debut album, Reid Farris is here to stay and the future looks bright for this red dirt newcomer.
